Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is capstone and therefore is require for students in Scott College of Business (SCOB) to complete this course. However, this course can be taken online or in class. I would recommend students to take this course on campus in a class setting. The in class setting offers more advantages because students are able to put the knowledge they gained in various courses within their major to action. This class is a student-run course and the students are operating a café within the SCOB and a consulting business. Therefore, it takes many resources to run a daily operating café and dealing with clients within the an consulting business. The online section of this class does not get the same experience as the in a class setting. This course offers real world experience.
The highlights of this course are students being able to put forth effort in what he or she is good at doing or majoring in. Since, students are running a café, there is a marketing team, accounting team, operation team, human resource team, education team, a café director, assistant café director and various other roles that students take on to help run a successful café. I was on the marketing team and within that team, I was a task with doing marketing research to gain consumer thoughts about the café, café food, prices, and they behavior. On the other hand, on the consulting team, I worked with a food truck client. I was a task with creating contracts, proposal and other written documents for the client. Moreover, I learned many things such as being able to conduct a directional analysis on a business, figuring out gaps for a business, and I learned how difficult it is working together as a team.

Advice for students:
There is no need to study for this course because this course is base off participation. You have to contribute to teams that you are in within the course. Furthermore, there is lots of writing because your team has to write a report for your client and you have to write a self-reflection paper over the course and what you learn.
